A teenager, charged in connection with the Kadooment Day shooting in which 20-year-old Taried Rock was killed and several other people injured, has joined three other accused men on remand at Dodds prison.
Seventeen-year-old Diego Reyshawn Wilson of Spencer’s Gap, Baxters Road, St Michael, appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court this morning accused of discharging a firearm on Spring Garden Highway on August 7 in a manner that placed 23 people in danger of death or serious bodily harm.
It is also alleged that he along with other persons used unlawful violence, which caused Barry Marshall to fear for his personal safety.
Wilson was not required to plead to the indictable charges when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant with his lawyers Arthur Holder and Shadia Simpson.
He will reappear in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on September 26 along with three other St Michael men – 17-year-old Elijah Copeland of Chase Gap, Halls Road; 17-year-old Raheem Grimes of Chadderton Road, Carrington Village; and 22-year-old Tristan Alleyne of Westbury Road.
